I am done with this blog

I will no longer be posting on here anymore. I believe I've proven my point. The truth is the stories of pastors and priests and just in general, Christians, will continue to be told. Ever since my last post on here, there's been probably about a hundred more stories of rape, kidnap, abuse, and murder. It'll just continue in the future. I no longer need to post on here to prove to everyone what happens in the name of Christianity.

I also will no longer be posting on the Christian Women Watch blog either. Its too much of a hassle transferring all the articles from here to over there.

I will however be posting on another blog (http://www.mymuslimthoughts.blogspot.com). Truth is I'm sick and tired of scholars and cultures interpreting our scriptures. I'm sick and tired of the haraam police, the takfeeris, and others justifying Islam according to their emotions and desires. I've been struggling my Islam for a while now, and the only way I can re-connect my heart with this deen is if I begin interpreting on my own. Now I'm not one of those people who have no idea what Islam says and will interpret however I feel like. I know Islam well enough. I have studied this religion inside and out since I was 15 (I'm 23 now). I know Islam well enough to realize our cultures and societies see the religion differently. This is a sad fact we all have to admit. I grew up in a gender equal society where people of all religions and cultures are equal. I grew up in a place that does not look down upon women for the choices they make. So it makes no sense to me to follow scholars and muslims who come from entirely contradictory backgrounds who see Islam in a way that makes me want to vomit and consider apostasy. This includes the islamic sites I have linked to on the side bar.

There will be more of this on the other blog. I may not be posting immediately, as I've got school and work, but you know what I'll be discussing on there.

Thanks to all the people who debated me and supported me all these years. That includes my Christian friends.

Hmmm, As a believer that Allah is the Creator of the Universe, I am compelled by logic to believe that you believe that Allah made you. And if you are intelligent as I believe you are, you would know enough about yourself and your DNA to know you were unique. With these being the givens, a logic person would have major problems with Islam which Christians would not.

What did Allah make you unique to do?

In Islam, the last prophet was Muhammad and with his death ended any hope a Muslim might have of knowing what Allah made them to do...because nothing that was written 1600 years ago is capable of telling you specifically what Allah made you to do during your lifetime.

Because you are unique, it is logically that He made you that way for a reason...otherwise, He would have made everyone the same. And if everyone was the same, everyone could read the Quran and know what Allah made them to do...the same as everyone else.

However, when we can look at a room full of children and see they are all different with different talents and likes, how much more does Allah know this? And if you know that you can't treat all children exactly the same, how much more does Allah know this?

So what did Allah make you to do during your lifetime? How are you to use your unique talents for the honor of Allah as He made you to do?

Obviously, if you were smarter than Allah, you would be in a better position than Allah to know how to use what Allah gave you in His mercy to do...but Allah knows more about you than you do so you need Him to tell you this. Not only have you been clueless about what He made you to do during your lifetime but all you know about Him is what someone else wrote over 1000 years ago. How could you possible know what Allah made you to do having so little knowledge about the reason He made you unique or know from your experience about Him?

Finally, how could you be faithful or obedient and not accomplish what Allah made you to do during your lifetime? When you stand before Allah, what are you going to do?...blame Him for your failure? To do so is to accuse Allah of not being merciful and giving generously.

Logically, since the prophets spoke what Allah said, one can rightly conclude that Allah can and did communicate to us...His creation. What isn't logical is that He would stop.

Why would Allah interfere with us doing with what He made us to do? He wouldn't! Therefore, He doesn't.

It is us not listening to Him. As the Quran doesn't tell us and we aren't born instinctively knowing what to do as other of Allah's creations, then Allah must communicate to us what He made us to do. If He doesn't, we will never be able to guess because His thoughts are so much greater than our own, He know why we were born and what spot we fit into His creation.

Therefore, the only path to travel is the one that Allah made...and the only way you specifically know that path is if Allah communicates with you what He made you uniquely to do during your lifetime.
